I saw this on FB posted by a friend, and this makes sense.
Just a talking point. Each part can be perfectly explained. And, much has to do with faith. Something an atheist cannot understand. However, the doctrine of homosexual behavior being sinful and unnatural is a law decreed in heaven and for those on earth. Thou shalt not participate in homosexual acts. With that, the Bible also teaches that husbands and wives are to love one another and therefore treat them sexually with love and kindness. So, performing unnatural acts during heterosexual intimacy is also sinful and unnatural. We must participate in moral behavior which is natural. It is natural to procreate and there is only one natural method of procreation for humans, heterosexual sexual intercourse. For homosexuals to perform unnatural sexual acts, they must go from moral behavior to unnatural instinctual behavior by a reprobate mind-shift. Thus, reverting to animal instincts as we see with homosexual penguins.
Wow, they didn't include the talking donkey or even unicorns in that one.
Seems the meme community is losing their touch.
Sad really, I used to enjoy reading those.
These photos are of Gay/ Lesbian bishops in the U.S.
Bishop Ervin - Lutheran Synod [Los Angeles]
Bishop Glasspool - Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles
Bishop Stowe - Catholic Diocese of Lexington, Kentucky
Are they not Christian?
If they are, Christianity can safely be written off as a sham.
Are you Christian?
No. What's your point?
If you are not Christian how can you write off other Christians [Gay bishops]?
Christ came to save His people from their sins, which can hardly happen if they're under the delusion God is the author of their sins, as these bogus clerics are.
Homosexuality is not addressed in the 10 commandments, which list the sins. It is portrayed in a very negative light several times in the Bible... but so is drinking, gambling and frivolous sex.
Frivolous sex is portrayed in at least as negative a light as homosexulaity, yet you never hear 'God hates sluts/boytoys.'
Don't see anything about pedophilia in there either.
Love they neighbor as thyself.
Unless you're prepared to argue that pedophelia can be loving, this covers it quite well.
Its incredible that you guys are homophobic because some religious person didn't like it in ancient times and claims this is the word of God. Religion can cause good believe to believe in terrible backwards things out of dogmatic faith. Terrorists have the exact some attitude toward their interpretation of their religion too. The only difference between you and a terrorist is what brand of religion you have faith in, and no amount of logic and reasoning will persuade any of you. Religions tend to be created in the ancient past and often have a lot of backwards teachings and hold societies back from advancing by their demand of blind faith in these teachings.
That ain't in the 10 Cs, pilgrim.
To be sure, that would be way less PC than arguing that sodomy between adults can be loving; but it wouldn't be any less idiotic.
How is having a loving relationship with someone of the same sex comparable to raping a child?
It was a commandment according to Jesus.
...unlike anything regarding homosexuality.
Well, let's look at a justification...
Sex is an expression of love.
Love your neighbor.
Have sex with your neighbor, man, woman, child.
Or, is love just a sentimental feeling of 'liking' other people?
Is there no 'wrong' in the human experience? Just justifications and word juggling?
Logic and reason are based on human observation and interpretation of events.
Humans are flawed and because of that how they see things is often wrong.
" there is a way that seems right to man but in the end leads to death. "
As fir frivolous sex not being condemned.
You see it throughout the bible, it's called adultery.
In other words the bible is right always and if at any point science, philosophy, or logic disagrees then to be right you have to use the bible.
So if humans often see things wrong then how do you trust your own belief in the bible based on sheer faith when even human's use of logic is flawed?
Adultery isn't the same as frivolous sex. You can have sex outside of marriage without adultery.
Indeed, which reflects how God had no problem with the Israelites taking the virginal girls of the Amelekites as sex slaves.
Does this mean you have never given nor received oral sex from your significant other? Because that is sodomy.
Or, for that matter, pedophilia.
Your point being...?
priests & alter boys ???
It is a bit ironic that the hierarchy now propose same-sex marriage:
"Cardinal Marx Opens the Door to Blessing Homosexual Unions" https://onepeterfive.com/cardinal-marx-opens-the-door-to-blessing-homosexual-unions/
In Bible speech they could be called "sons of hell".
